Electrical Permit & Amended Ordinance


Electrical Permit

Amended Ordinance

The amended City of Malvern Ordinance for Electrical Service Entrance

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter to inform you of the updated City of Malvern Electrical Code Ordinance to include some Life Safety requirements when outside services are being upgraded.

The City of Malvern will require working smoke detectors to be installed, Outside Means of Disconnect, and bathroom receptacles to meet the requirements of Article 210.8 (A), ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). This is in addition to the latest Energy Specifications and other requirements per National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70, 2017 edition.

The smoke detectors installed shall meet the requirements of the Arkansas Fire Prevention Code, Volume 3, Section R314 (PDF). If you have any questions, feel free to call or stop by the office. I appreciate your help in ensuring a safe living environment for the citizens and guests of our City.
